The girl at the window

In 1959 a German artist – Ursula Pusch-Wennrich – painted a striking portrait called ‘The Girl At the Window’. A quarter of a century on, the painting hangs on the wall of producer Anna Yeadell. Even as a small child Anna was drawn to the ‘Girl At The Window’ as it hung in her grandparent’s home. When they died in the late 1980’s, the painting was left to Anna and her curiosity about the girl and the artist who painted her were re-awakened.

Join us as Anna Yeadell goes in search of Ursula Pusch-Wennrich and discovers the 90-year-old artist still painting and with an incredible story to tell.
